Other than the U.S. Solicitor General, state government is by far the most frequent litigant in the U.S. Supreme Court on such issues as the death penalty, climate change, gun control, foreclosure jurisdiction, immigration, voting rights and, of course, the Affordable Care Act. This class will study states’ practice before the Supreme Court, including the important role played by attorneys general submitting amici curiae briefs.

Guest:  Dan Schweitzer, NAAG Supreme Court Counsel
